I've read and enjoyed lots of Lisa Scottoline books. Most of them are more lighthearted than this one. The story is interesting and makes you think about what you'd do if you had a similar moral dilemma. it has a bit of a fairytale ending, but I still liked it alot. Highly recommended!
A condensed version.
Probably not, but it might just be the roles they were reading. Julia's voice was so whiny. Kirby's was too high.
many many chapters, all the endless whining/explaining by Amy. Most of the middle. The plot did not warrant such a long drawn-out book.
While the basic, "whodunnit" is kind of interesting at first, this book drags on and on. Neither character is particularly likable. About halfway through, I actually asked someone who'd read it to tell me what happened so I wouldn't have to listen to the whole long boring story to get to the end. She gave me a hint and I skipped about 20 chapters and listened to the last couple. I felt completely ripped off and disgusted by the ending.
He talked and talked, belabored his points, and there was no story or plot.
I thought it was going to be great based on the reviews, but it didn't keep my attention at all. Listening to it while stuck in a traffic jam, all I could do was wish I had something more interesting to listen to.
He was fine.
Just boredom and disappointment.
I truly don't understand why people love this book and why they made a movie of it. Maybe I should have tried to continue past ch. 14, but I was afraid I'd fall asleep while driving.
Although this book is very long, I enjoyed it very much. Of course I already knew there are big problems in Palestine and Israel, but this book gave me a much understanding of the issue, while being interesting and entertaining, too. An intelligent novel.
